The main ElevenplusExams website, under heading "Schools" -> sidebar "Birmingham" says this,

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Queen Mary’s Grammar School (Boys, girls admitted to the 6th form) is unique among the 164 grammar schools in the UK because it is the only school which tests for 11+ entry in Year 5. Tests take place in the summer term of Year 5 and parents and prospective pupils then face a wait of more than 8 months for the results! The school offers 96 places to qualified pupils, with places being allocated by score in descending order. The tests consist of Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning and maths.

Queen Mary’s High School (Girls, boys admitted to the 6th form) is twinned with QMGS and also offers 96 selective places. The test date is 1st December 2010, and places are likewise allocated by scores in descending order. No published information about test content is available, but given the twinning arrangement between the two schools, it should be assumed that the entrance tests are the same for both.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Which looks pretty bad until you realize the link to it doesn't even mention Walsall - so people won't be able to find it anyway.

I know a tiny bit about the boys grammar but couldn't update the high school info at all.

Is this something 'the tutors' take care of (and they just need prodding) or would anyone like to join in rewriting this?

The information about Queen Mary's Boys is incorrect. In fact you have less of a wait as the tests are usually taken the first or second Wednesday in December.
Since last year the exam has been written by CEM, the same company that writes the Birmingham consortium Grammar and Warwickshire Grammar exams.

Thank you for mentioning those points. The errors in the information have been corrected, and I have requested that the programmers should add Walsall to the sidebar as "Birmingham & Walsall".
